Do the 5.1 shows need to be burned with a dvd drive or will regular cd-rs work?

Hi StPaulJacobs, here you go (got this from the show's info file):

Burning Instructions:
Burn them the absolute same way as you would burn any normal Audio-CD from .shn files.

Today's audio standards are moving towards multi-channel sound, like DTS and Dolby Digital.
While the Audio-CD standard (Red Book) hasn't changed to accommodate these new sound formats,
it is still possible to go around the specification and to put a 5.1 surround recording on a
regular Audio-CD. To play a DTS-Audio-CD you must connect your DVD/CD player via a digital
cable (optical or coaxial) to your DTS/Dolby-Digital receiver. It is not 100% sure that your
receiver will recognize a DTS-Audio CD, so the first time you're trying to playback a
DTS-Audio-CD you must do a test to determine if it can. Begin with the volume very low, start
the disc and rise the volume gradually. NEVER listen to a DTS-Audio-CD through the analogue
audio outputs of your CD/DVD player.

Kinda cool, hope someday I can find a 5.1 system to try this show on.... :)
